Employee of the Month
Jeff Smithee, Maintenance Worker II within Missouri Veterans Commission – Mexico Veterans Home, has been selected as the October, 2015 Employee of the Month for the Department of Public Safety. Jeff was chosen as the Employee of the Month because of his quick assessment of and response to a situation involving a Veteran requiring immediate medical assistance. Without any hesitation, Jeff immediately responded, and as a result, redirected the outcome of what had quickly progressed into a dire moment. It was Jeff’s attention to his surroundings and to the Veterans themselves, while performing his routine maintenance responsibilities, which attributed to a life being saved that day.
